It’s throwback night this Saturday as an eclectic mix of CU musical alumni drop by the Canopy Club for the Green St. Records Showcase. The night’s lineup includes Animate Objects, Bullet Called Life, The Lifeline and Missing the Point. After years of gracing stages here on campus, these bands are now on touring circuits in Chicago and beyond. The Saturday night homecoming will give these bands, and you, a chance to rock out in hometown accord and possibly catch up on old times over a glass of chilled wine. Or something like that.
There’s a little something for everyone at this show: the chill hip hop of Animate Objects, the classic rock-influenced Bullet Called Life, the crunchy violin-laden late alternative era sounds of The Lifeline and the poppy Missing the Point. If you were ever curious as to what the CU scene sounded like before you arrived, or if you’ve waited for a reunion show like this as an opportunity to come out of hiding and satisfy your nostalgic desires (estranged sophomore year roommate – I’m calling you out), then prepare to be rocked… old-skool-style!
